COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

 

COVID-19

The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.

Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, this and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.

Our worship of God and our care for each other is being done in ways which don’t require us to use the Church Building.

A prayer

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen

Light a candle of hope

At 9pm this Sunday, light a candle in the windows of your home as a visible symbol of the light of life, Jesus Christ, our source and hope in prayer. We have the great privilege and freedom to be able to call upon God, wherever we are, individually and corporately, for healing in our nation. Join with others in drawing near to God and bringing the needs of this world to Him.

Who we are

Led by our Vicar, Martin, our church has a dedicated team of volunteers and our vision is to Journey Together with Jesus, for the Community and with the Community.
